Alkalinity prevents pH bounce. Low alkalinity is very corrosive to the filter and other pool equipment. High alkalinity promotes scale formation, cloudy water and reduces chlorine efficiency. For best results, maintain 80 to 150 ppm total alkalinity.

Before Adding Alkalinity Plus to Your Pool:

  1. Measure the total alkalinity of the pool water with a reliable test kit or test strips.
  2. If total alkalinity is below 80 ppm, add Alkalinity Plus using the dosage chart below.
